On the road again for a nonprofit: travel expenses deductible?

by on
in Small Business Tax

Q. My daughter works for a nonprofit. Based on a recent article, can she deduct her travel expenses? B.Z., Millburn, N.J.

A. It depends. The article was directed at taxpayers who incur out-of-pocket travel expenses while performing volunteer services on behalf of a charity. Those individuals can deduct all of their expenses to the extent they aren’t reimbursed. But it sounds like your daughter is an employee, not a charitable volunteer. In that case, the usual rules govern her business travel deductions, so she may benefit on a limited basis (e.g., for travel between her main office and a fundraising event).

Tip: If your daughter is fully reimbursed for her business travel, she cannot claim any deduction.
